Allowing 30mins each, (which may be a bit modest)

i.e.

find lamp position & fuse to isolate,

carry tools to lamp,

up ladder,

verify dead.. safe isolation etc..

remove old

fit new

re energise & test ok...

shift ladder & tools to next position..

ect... repeat 18 more times...

(have a tea break.. visit loo!)

19 x 30mins = 9.5hours straight work IMHO

Stairwell???!!

any tricky ladder bits?

realistically more like 1.5 days at a guess

:|;)

Need more info mate - lighting type (em/std), wiring type, type of fitting, ease of access etc.

wiring system is steel conduit, lamp is a circular bulk head, access is easy - small ladder jobby,

cable type will be singles, so may need to be extended using cable crimps...

do the light sit on the conduit? or are they top entry or something like that?

I could be wrong here but i would be looking to see of any of them had been wired through. Will add time and a few more connections, but not much.

is this not just a days work + mats?

If its conduit boxes even if you have got to lenghten cables it should be straight forward. Get a price for fittings work out how long it should take you should be able to price from that. Personallty I would allow a days work as you don't want anything less else its not worth doing job.

Go for three days plus materials then, personally sounds to me like a days work but without seeing job I am probably way out.

price for that then, if thats what they think they should be expecting a quote for three days work. are you the only one quoting? are they happy with the stairwell being closed three days?

it will have to be split over a couple of weeks, as the building is only closed on mondays..
